Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

green

Windows Firewall with Advanced Security can be configured to notify the user when an application is blocked by the firewall, and ask if the application should continue to be blocked in the future. This notification is turned on by default in Windows Vista, and turned off by default in Windows Server 2008.

When appropriate auditing events are enabled (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=92666), Windows reports when applications are blocked by the firewall.
